Triple Murder Suspect Waives Right To Appear At Hearing

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After months of delay, a court hearing for the man accused of killing a family in Bellevue was held Tuesday morning.

Craig Garber waived his right to appear at his preliminary hearing on three counts of criminal homicide. He was charged in the stabbing deaths of Michelle Pinkowski, her mother Marylea Jordan, and her 15-year-old son Jonathan Culpepper.

Police said Garber stabbed all three to death in their home on Beech Bend Drive on September 2, and then stabbed himself.

The neighbor took the stand Tuesday, testifying about how Pinkowski's 9-year-old daughter was able to escape out a back door and run to his house for help. 

The first officer who arrived on the grisly scene also took the stand, describing the blood at the crime scene.

The case will now head to a grand jury.
